We are always interested in news about our tenants and 2016 proved to be particularly special for three who picked up awards at the annual Rossendale Awards.
Arthouse Ltd, who are based at St James Church, Waterfoot won the coveted Business of the Year 2016 title at the annual Rossendale Awards.
The Business of the Year category of the R Awards is a prized award. Nominees (open to businesses with 5 or more employees) had to demonstrate improved business performance since 2015; sound financial and business planning – as well as showing that the business has successfully overcome challenges and can display a clear team ethos with staff involvement and motivation.
All in all, meeting all the criteria was no mean feat! The award is richly deserved by Arthouse Ltd. The company offers a fantastic range of products, including wallpaper, coving and tiles, as well as PR and Marketing services.
Flight Deck Experience, tenants of Unit P, Toll Bar Business Park, Stacksteads picked up not just one but TWO awards at the annual Rossendale Awards – the Tourism Award and the Valley at Work Award.
